Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that he holds a big admiration for former Everton and Manchester United boss David Moyes, as reported by the Daily Star.
Moyes has become something of a figure of fun to fans after his spell in charge of the Old Trafford club, which saw the Red Devils drop to seventh in the Premier League last season.
Regular disappointments were served up to fans of Man Utd last season, with a 3-0 loss against Liverpool at Old Trafford a particular low-light for Moyes’s side.
He saw his contract terminated before the end of the season, having failed to lead Man Utd to a European place.
However, prior to his time with Man Utd, Moyes had had an extended spell in charge of Everton, which impressed many.
10 years of relatively sustained success with the Toffees saw Moyes given the big job, but Rodgers respects him for his time at his Merseyside rivals.
He said: “There are many people and managers I have a big admiration for.
“I look at David Moyes and the incredible job he did at Everton although he didn’t win a trophy.
“People might look at me in the next number of years and if I win some trophies they might say that’s a success, but I believe my success was the 15 years before that, leading up to that, my success and my journey as a manager and working with young players.
“That’s what I deem as my success.”
